I've had a hard disk failure on my desktop computer. I am not unduly alarmed, because I have this laptop and most of what I need is right here. There are no doubt lots of files I'd like to have from that computer but if I have lost them all the world won't end. I am thinking I'll get one of those packages that I can insert a hard drive into, to make it like an external drive. Then I can look at what is or isn't on those drives.

I used the four boot disks required for Win 2000 and at the end they told me there were no drives there...heheheheh...you'd think they might have picked up that bit of info earlier in the process.

I was worried about these drives. The computer had been making noise for a long time and I know that leaving it on only increases the wear on the hard drives, and Paul has been using it and leaving it on all the time. Occasionally I just shut it down, regardless of what he was in the middle of doing, because he pretty much never closes things. Still, I knew it was near the end. This wasn't unexpected. Just inconvenient.
